An Aleppo man detonated a grenade yesterday, injuring Syrian government troops”
Yesterday, a man from the city of Aleppo in Syria caused an explosion with a grenade, resulting in several injuries of Syrian government troops. The incident occurred at approximately 8 PM local time in a district in the southwestern area of the city.
According to reports, the grenade detonated near a checkpoint where a security patrol had been set up. The intensity of the explosion caused multiple members of the patrol to be hurt, although there have been no reports of causalities.
The Syrian Civil Defense force, also known as the White Helmets, attended to the scene shortly after the incident and provided medical care to those injured. The organization later reported that the situation had been brought under control.
Aleppo is the largest city in Syria and is the capital of the eponymous province. It has been a major battleground since the onset of the Syrian civil war in 2011, with control of the city being hotly contested by both the Syrian Government and opposing rebel forces. While the district where this incident took place is reportedly declared to be within the realm of government control, there have been rumors of rebel activity in the area.
The exact motivation behind the grenade attack is yet to be established but is being investigated. Aleppo police forces have announced that all security patrols have been put on alert in order to ensure the safety of the residents in the region and prevent further similar occurrences.
The incident where Syrian regime troops were injured by a detonated grenade – occurred in the Al-Shaar neighbourhood of the northwestern city of Aleppo.

A wanted man detonated a bomb in the al-Shaar neighbourhood of the northern Syrian city of Aleppo, on Tuesday evening, injuring three regime troops, according to the regime’s Ministry of Interior.
The man, who was reportedly accompanied by another individual, was allegedly wearing an explosive belt and was in “possession of bombs and military weapons”, according to a statement on the ministry’s Facebook page.
The men were allegedly in the neighbourhood to commit theft, when members of the regime’s Criminal Security Branch were called to arrest them, before one of the men detonated a grenade injuring them with shrapnel.
Despite the incident, the regime’s Criminal Security Branch managed to arrest the two men, and found them in possession of an explosive belt and claw pistol, as well as military bomb and narcotic pills, according to the Syrian Baladi News website.
The men were subsequently taken to Aleppo University Hospital to receive treatment, however, their condition remains unknown.
Areas under regime control have seen heightened rates of crime and a lack of security. Murders, looting, and drug-related incidents have taken place, while regime forces target Syrian civilians who oppose the Assad regime.
Kurdish-majority neighbourhoods of Aleppo have been placed under siege, with residents suffering what has been described as ‘prison-like’ conditions, as the regime tries to turn them against the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) fighters currently in control of these areas.
At least half a million people have been killed since the Syrian conflict began in 2011 with the brutal suppression of pro-democracy protests by the Assad regime.
Millions more Syrians have been displaced as a result of the conflict and 80% of Syrians now live in poverty.
